*Spoiler Alert!! This Article May Contain Spoilers To Captain America: Civil War
When Captain America: Civil War was first announced the speculation around the death of Captain America immediately started. As comic book fans know [SPOILER ALERT] at the end of 2006’s Civil War comic book epic by Mark Millar, Captain America meets his end. On his way to trial for the events of Civil War, Steve Rogers is shoot by a snipers bullet and the man behind the trigger is Crossbones.
Actor Frank Grillo is reprising his role as Crossbones in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie and at a recent panel during Wizard World New Orleans, Grillo teased filming such a scene (via Comicbookmovie.com). But in a recent interview with Comicbook.com it appears Frank has something different to say about that iconic moment.
“I spoke to Brubaker, who created Crossbones who’s a great dude, and I got some of the back issues and stuff and read the origins of Crossbones and where he came from. The thing with Marvel is they don’t always follow to the tee what the character did in the comic books. They use him in different ways. You never know what’s gonna happen. I know Crossbones in the comics kind of offs Cap at some point and we’re probably not gonna see that happen. I’m not gonna kill him yet.” - Frank Grillo
So what is Crossbones motivation in Civil War? I think after the events of Winter Solider we all have a pretty good guess; Revenge!
“Winter Soldier let off and I was in bad shape. I was just about to kill the Falcon - which is not hard. I think revenge is a big part of… Whatever Rumlow was feeling as far as being torn between which side he should be on, which I think he was, is gone now. I think he’s out for one thing and one thing only and that’s to revenge what’s happened to him.” - Frank Grillo
So what do you think of Frank Grillo’s wish washy statements concerning Crossbones? Do you think we will see him take that shoot? Sound off in the comments below.
